Bono's Picks for the 2 Biggest Hits on "Bomb"

Well, I'm feeling smug at the moment because ever since I heard the "Bomb," I've been running around telling everyone that "Sometimes" and "Original" are two of U2's best songs ever, and the two best on the album by far. And now check out what Bono told Rolling Stone!

BONO: But I won't really feel confident until "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own" or "Original of the Species," one of those two, punctures the "pop" balloon. Otherwise, the album won't be what it should be.

I'm not too keen on OOTS, the 2nd half of the song is brilliance and U2 magic, but the first have could have been soo much more. AMAAW and Yahweh beat the crap out of it.

OOTS definately can be a hit-- with the opposite crowd that liked vertigo though, the older music crowd, who are into the beatles, because it seems that every beatles fan who listens to OOTS immediately says its beatle territory & a great song

i am confused... what the hell is the "pop" balloon? Does that mean he wants it to be a hit pop song, or does it have to do with the songs from Pop the album?

I have to say that the two favs on the album for me are " Love And Peace Or Else." I just love the groove of it, it is a different kind of U2 song for me. I also love COBL, I have never been to New York and i am trying to go this next year. That will be my feeling for the way i will be when i see the city for the first time. so i want to make that my song. The third song i like is ABOY, then OOTS.

Id love OOTS to be a huge single. But I just cant see it happening. Not here in the UK anyway. The single-buying public here (10yr olds basically!) just wont understand the song, and continue to buy the X Factor winners 'new' single that week or something. Plus U2 have never had 2 no.1 singles off the same album. Not over here anyway.

I agree, also add City of blinding lights.

(Stuck was strong enough, it was U2's strongest song from ATYCLB after Beautiful day in the US, and did good everywhere else in the world)

Nope. Neither song is all-round brilliant like OOTS os, it is a MASSIVE pop song, with all the right ingredients..the two you spoke of oyu are good songs but not great, IMO.

OOTS is Beatle lite...make that extra lite.

Crumbs, Sometimes, MD are all superior singles. But, it's up to Bono, really...

I really don't see the appeal of Yahweh. It's like a mish-mash of sounds thrown together. You can't hear anything clearly. Plus, the double-tracking of Bono's voice is so badly done; it sounds so cheesy and amateur. (IMO)
